First Look: Our Sliiiiiither Lake Spooky Yard

Happy Halloweek!

In between my regular weekend chores, No. 1 Alabama baaaaarely holding on to beat Tennessee, and an ongoing mental cage match that pitted my flyweight creativity against some heavyweight procrastinatory frustrations battling it out as I tried to write a spooky tale to tell Sunday night at a storytelling event I’d been invited to participate in, Susan and I found time to spooktacularize our front yard with ghosts, ghouls and goblins and such.

Hopefully it’ll be enough to scare off the chance of rain I’m hearing might hit on Halloween.

A Flickr photoset is here.

More on the spooky tale — including the story itself — later.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
